Where Did the Rocks Go?

Poof - Gone!I had convinced myself that no matter what the results from the brain calcification tests show, I was going to live a healthy and thankful life.  I had gotten used to the thought of making jokes about the rocks in my head.  I would blame every forgotten event, misplaced item and the occasional emotional rant on the ever-growing calcium deposits in my brain (a little research makes one dangerous).

Nobody’s Home

Imagine my surprise when the doctor’s office called and said, “There’s nothing there.”  What?? Nothing there?  Well, then she rephrased it and said, “Everything is normal.”

Woah, you mean I kept, as Rachel Maddow would say, “talking myself down”  over nothing?  Oh well, it could have been a lot worse.

Moral of the Story

Life is a GiftNowadays, patients have more access to information, via the internet, regarding potential health concerns.  It’s a double-edged sword.  After spending a day or two researching brain calcification, I became a bit more informed and a whole lot more confused.

Fortunately, my calcification of the brain was just a scare, but it has caused me to make a few dietary and daily habit changes.  It is my choice to pay a little closer attention to what I eat, drink and be a little more thankful for what I have.

Each day is a gift and I want to make the best of it.
